Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Funamo today releases its latest parental control software for Kindle Fire devices which are used by many kids today. With Funamo parental control, parents finally have the power to protect, control and monitor their kids’ Kindle Fire devices.
Amazon Kindle Fire was the first low-cost tablet introduced by Amazon at the end of last year. It provides an easy access to Amazon's massive offering of e-books, music, movies, TV shows and apps. However, online safety remains the number 1 concern for many parents when they purchase the device for their kids. A recent survey showed that 80 percent of kids have accessed pornography online when they reach the age of 16.
"The parental control offered by Amazon is very limited. It only allows parents to restrict purchases, internet access and access to certain contents.” said Howard Li, Funamo’s founder and CEO. “Parents are looking for a more comprehensive parental control solution for Kindle Fire devices that is both effective and easy-to-use.
“Our patent-pending web filtering technology is robust and highly efficient. It is designed specifically for mobile devices and optimized for the mobile environment. It blocks inappropriate web sites and enforces SafeSearch for leading search engines. Parents can also customize web filtering with their own blacklist and whitelist. We recently introduced the whitelist-only mode which blocks out all websites except for the ones you selected in the whitelist.”
Besides web filtering, Funamo also provides device monitoring and application control. Parents can choose to have contacts, web browsing history, and application usage data logged and uploaded to Funamo server. So parents can login from any web browser 24/7 to keep track of all the activities on the device. Application control allows parents to set password and specify time limit for selected applications such as system settings and games. Detailed instructions and video tutorials are available at Funamo website.
A license can be purchased on Funamo website for $19.99 which will protect the device for as long as the user owns it. No subscription, no monthly fees. Now for as little as the price of a book, parents can have peace of mind with their kids' Kindle Fire devices.
